Wake Up on Lan with A7M266 and 3C905C-TX

  1. Hi all

    Did anybody ever successfully try Wake Up on Lan with the Asus A7M266
    mainboard and a 3Com 3C905C-TX NIC? I've this combination and it
    doesn't work. I tried it with another NIC of this series on a P3B-F -
    not working either :-(
    I'm using ether-wake which works fine for my notebook (Dell Latitude

    What did I check so far:
    - WOL is enabled in BIOS
    - WOL cable is connected
    - NIC has link when PC is off
    - MAC Address used for ether-wake is correct

    PS: Power supply is an Enermax EG301P-VEG (300W).

    Is there an ACPI/APM component to this problem ? How the
    system is shut down by the OS, determines whether it can be
    awakened by a magic packet.

    One post in Google says:

    "If the machines are in standby, you can configure the LAN
    Adapter to "Allow this device to bring the computer out
    of standby". "
